                      • Family with children
                        3.8

                        One of the worst Motels I have stayed at, in one word Budget!

                      • Older travelers
                        9.0

                        Good value for money. Great location, just walking distance to all that Taupo can offer the tourist! Staff very friendly and helpful.

                        Issues with power failures. Swimming pool and spa are not very inviting, very dark.

                      • Family with children
                        9.2

                        location could walk anywhere we needed to go.

                        swimming pool and spa area needs upgrading and cleaning. exercise equipment broken.

                      • Older travelers
                        10.0

                        the clever use of space , ie placement of funiture and amenities. The fact that it was so close to town and the water.

                      • Older travelers
                        7.8

                        The room was spacious and adequate.

                        Car parking was extremely restrictive.

                      • Group of friends
                        5.4

                        Close to the centre of town

                        Initial room offered had shower cubicle door that stuck and felt like it was going to come off in your hand when you wrenched it open. No ability to lock kitchen window altho it did have security stay on. Cooking facilities were very old and chipped enamel, etc. Moved rooms. General finish of the paintwork in both rooms was very poor with paint lifted in the bathroom. Big stain on the ceiling. Bathroom had no extractor fan so after shower in the morning had to leave the window open to clear the air. Not ideal on a ground floor in winter, when you want to go out. While both beds had an electric blanket, one had no power socket close enough to plug it without moving the bed (and no extension cord). Our room seemed to be right by plumbing so every time person in the unit above had a shower, noisy water sounds down the wall - not great at 2am when it goes on for 20 minutes!!

                      • Older travelers
                        6.2

                        We only used the room as a bedroom as we had family next door. Property looked a little tired with paint peeling off the ceiling in bathroom. The room was otherwise clean and tidy. You have to turn the TV off at the wall or the stand by light is too bright on your sleeping eyes.We ordered a paper which did not arrive.

                      • Group of friends
                        5.4

                        Location

                        It's a bit tired, paint peeling from ceiling in shower. Photo of pool /sauna area on website must have been taken some time ago.

                      • Older travelers
                        7.8

                        Very good location. Easy walk to shops and bars etc. Staff were very helpful. Had a good lake view from our unit which was located on 3rd floor.easy to find and just enough car parks.

                        Pool area with spa was not quite like the picture in the brochure. Needs a refurbishment.

                      • Family with children
                        10.0

                        Very friendly staff,and very clean rooms,with plenty of parking

                      • Group of friends
                        7.0

                        All good, never got to use the facilities (My issue too many other activities). Had to wait when checking in not a major for us as we has a bit of time up our sleeve, but still not great customer service. Would stay again. Peter

                      • Group of friends
                        6.6

                        Proximity to the town/shops.

                        Room 25 had no view of Lake Taupo and no WIFI connectivity. The room was 'soulless'. Dreary colours on the walls and no artwork. Toilet seat cover was cracked as was the piece between bowl and cistern. NOT a good look. Pool/spa area needs to have some control over who can access it as we were not sure if some of the people in there were locals. They moved the wheely bins in the yard to 'save' a parking space which seemed a bit strange. We could see this as it was the view we had from our window. NOT what we expected from a motel calling itself Absolute Lake View!! Our room was tired looking and in need of a makeover.

                        Convenient, easy to find on our way through Taupo

                        Decor a little tired but clean and adequate.

                        Central to shops. Neat and tidy.

                        Bathroom could do with a bit of painting - ceiling

                        Great views and location

                        Room was tired...no soap in toilet or hand towels...no toiletries at all....inadequate supply of milk ,coffee sugar for 3 people let alone 6 the room's capacity ....functional but no beauty. Facility overall not as good as that represented on the website
